Hello dear reader!
On photoaxe birthday (January 16) I promised you that photoaxe will become closer and closer to you and your needs. Now here’s what I wanted to say with that:
There is a new category which consists of photo critique.
You just send me an email (laurentia.fr[at]gmail.com) with a low resolution picture (max. 900 px wide) and then, each weekend from now on, I will post up to 6 or 7 pictures with their critique. If your photo is posted on your blog or some web gallery, mention that and give a link. You will receive a trackback.
You can send up to 1 picture per week. If in one week I receive more than 7 requests, the ones that won’t get critique in that week, will follow up next week.
This critique will be split in two parts: the Technical Aspects and the Visual Aesthetics. Depending on the amount of post-processing, I will write a few words on that too. A conclusion phrase will state “what I like and what I don’t like”.
This been said, I’m now waiting for your critique requests. I promise to give constructive advices so that your photography will improve.
Once I have received and reviewed the photos, a selection will be posted in the new Photo Critique category. Every edition will be emailed to the list of subscribers because I belive there is no better way to learn photography (or anything for that matter) than from mistakes. Even from the mistakes other people do. Therefore, watch your inbox for these emails, read and learn about what could have been done better in every photo you receive.
